Why are you still suffering chronic migraines?
Stephen Silberstein, M.D., director of the Jefferson Headache Center and professor of neurology at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia is one of the most published migraine neurologists in the country.
According to Dr. Silberstein, “One of the greatest bugaboos we see every day in headache centers is patients with chronic daily or near-daily headache, who are overusing medication. It is our most common problem. These patients have often not responded to treatment and in an attempt to treat themselves, actually make the problem worse. This is not addiction or an attempt to get ‘high’; rather, it is motivated by the patient’s desire to relieve pain and dysfunction.”
He added, “Migraine preventive therapy is grossly underused.”
TO REDUCE THE FREQUENCY & INTENSITY OF MIGRAINES, PHYSICIANS, NEUROLOGISTS AND LEADING HEADACHE CLINICS ARE RECOMMENDING MIGRELIEF TODAY MORE THAN EVER BEFORE.
This is good news for migraine sufferers, who have run the gambit of side-effect prone prescription and OTC drugs, only to find themselves caught up in a vicious cycle of recurring migraines (rebound headaches) or medication overuse headaches (MOH).
Officially, you are considered a chronic migraineur if you experience the symptoms of migraine attacks 15 days or more a month and therefore a candidate for the various preventive migraine options that exist.
Of course this is somewhat of an arbitrary definition and who is to say that if you experience 12 days a month of debilitating pain and live on pain medications, that you also wouldn’t benefit from preventive therapies.
The AAN defines substantial as:
• Recurring migraines that significantly interfere with daily routine, despite acute treatment
• Frequent headaches
• Contraindication to, failure of, or over use of acute therapies
• Adverse events with acute therapies
• Patient preference
• Presence of uncommon migraine conditions, including hemiplegic migraine, basiliar migraine, migraine with prolonged aura , or migrainous infarction.
Unlike medications taken to relieve the pain and other symptoms of a migraine attack once it occurs, preventive therapies are prescription medications or certain supplements that are taken on a daily basis to prevent migraines from occurring in the first place or to decrease the frequency, intensity and duration of migraines.
If it has become obvious to you that taking pain relievers to treat the pain of your migraines, has become an all too frequent part of your month, then preventive options may, really improve the quality of your life.
The issue is that many migraineurs who have tried prescription preventive migraine drugs have experienced a range of side-effects, some of which are annoying enough to cause them to stop using these medications.
A list of just some of the side-effects associated with these various types of medications are *
Loss of sex drive
Unwanted weight gain or loss
Tightness in the chest
*Not every preventive medication has all of these side-effects.
Neurology studies and surveys such as the one published in the journal “Headache” and carried out by the Michigan Head Pain Neurological Institute have shown that patients want and need their physicians to explain the side-effects they may be exposed to when they need to make a choice as to what preventive options they are going to try.
The survey found that chronic migraineurs are even willing to take more than one preventive medicine if additional relief is noticed. Two of the biggest side-effect concerns amongst women migraineurs were weight gain and sleepiness.
According to Dr. Silberstein, “Migraine prevention can be difficult to initiate. Patients may be hesitant to take daily medication for headache. Often, education and patients are key to successful treatment with preventive medications.”
Silberstein continues, “It may take some patients up to 3 months to see an improvement in headache patterns, especially if they are not keeping a diary, where headaches slowly become less frequent and less severe. Until successful preventive medication is underway, regulating acute medications can be problematic. Coexisting conditions (depression, anxiety) also may need to be monitored and possibly treated. “ (Link to past depression articles)
It is important to note that MigreLief’s natural triple therapy for prevention may be safely combined with prescription migraine and depression medications, as well as OTC drugs. MigreLief is a good fit for migraineurs who wish to slowly detox from the overuse of medications as it has been known to lessen the side effects while it addresses the underlying nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that may have caused the migraines in the first place.
Although it is recommended that MigreLief be taken for 3 months for maximum beneficial results, many patients have reported success in as little as three weeks.
We too recommend that a migraine diary be used to track the preventive effects of MigreLief, the reduction in migraine frequency and severity as well as the reduction in need for prescription medications.
MigreLief’s triple therapy approach for prevention stems from the three natural ingredients listed in the American Academy of Neurology’s Evidence Based Guidelines for Migraine Prophylaxis, Magnesium (oxide and citrate), Riboflavin (B-2) and Puracol Feverfew (Proprietary form of the herb Feverfew (whole leaf and extract)
Information from physicians who are using MigreLief in their practices suggest that although these three ingredients work to some degree independently, they may have a synergistic affect when used in combination and therefore assist to maintain proper tone of cerebral blood vessels. By improving tone, blood may flow freely from vessel to vessel and prevent sudden spasms. It may also inhibit platelet aggregation, stabilize membranes, and decrease the inflammatory process. **(Magnesium, Riboflavin, and Feverfew – Therapeutic Use in Migraine Prevention)
Magnesium: Research studies show that almost half of all migraine sufferers have low blood levels of Magnesium, which is critical in controlling vasospasms (the contraction and dilation of blood vessels in the brain which occurs during migraines).
Riboflavin (B-2): Migraine sufferers also suffer mitochondrial energy deficiencies, which Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) can improve when given in high dosages.
Puracol Feverfew: The plant material Feverfew has been shown to reduce platelet aggregation, which can lead to vasoconstriction. The Puracol technology simultaneously maximizes parthenolide levels while maintaining the full spectrum of all the other naturally occurring compounds found in the whole plant.
